Whom after careful study of my contribution to my immediate community and antecedent in the public service, decided to pitch their tent with me as a credible candidate to contest for the position of a senator in the forthcoming senatorial election under the flagship of the APC.

“In the months past, i and my team have been making wide consultations with traditional heads, party leaders and prominent members of the division .I am strongly motivated by their overwhelming show of support, words of encouragement and prayers. I am using this opportunity to state categorically that; it is with all sense of responsibility that i accepted this call by my people, i remain deeply committed to it and  not willing to trade it for any motive that is self aggrandizing.”
